Re: Walmart Scoring Model

How many inquiries do you have? They accepted me with 12 or 13. 

 

GE tends to be one of those companies that, when they deny you, just throw at random reasons and hope they stick.

Re: Walmart Scoring Model

Around 20? A couple of car dealerships went nuts in a 2 month time frame when I asked them to stop floating my information around if they couldn't get an approval. In fact, after they got an approval and I purchased else where - they still kept apping me.

I have one unpaid collection for student loans, the rest have been PFD. 6 months perfect history on an auto loan, 2 secured cards.

 

I have no public records. I only have 4 positive trade lines - auto loan, WF secured card, Cap1 secured card, Sears Citi. Other than that I have no recent credit.

 

And it appears to be the GE scoring model.

 

Apparently I can't win.


what is the score range?

Re: Walmart Scoring Model

^ I hate dealers that do this. There should be a law against it. I've seen scores tank 700 to 620's after dealer app sprees. I own a car dealership and I am always sensitive about how many apps I do for my customers and I always make them aware that it is a hard pull and explain the difference.

Re: Walmart Scoring Model

It sucks. I know for a fact some of them kept apping me after they had gotten a couple of approvals, and I went else where to buy. EQ has more than any of them - over 50! All from companys I have never even heard of.

myfico uses an older version of TU Fico that almost no one uses anymore (TU04), everyone uses TU08 now.


myfico sells TU98, not TU04.  FICO 04 is the most widely used Fico scoring model.  Some use FICO 8.  Few still use FICO 04.  Also, EQ Fico score sold by myfico is FICO04.  So basically right on your basic facts but just wrong on the various numbers :smileyhappy:


You're right lol, i don't know how I switched them hehe, thanks for correcting me! :smileyvery-happy:
